Blogging Changes Lives: How It Changed Faitth Brooks

Blogging Changes Lives

Faitth Brooks and I chatted about how blogging changes lives as I charged my phone at the airport. Since I’m still writing Because of Blogging, I asked if I could interview her. She agreed.

Faitth Brooks Program Director at Legacy Collective

“My name is Faitth, and yes I spell my name with two t’s, so it’s not a typo. I am relishing in the glory days of my early twenties and loving every moment.”

Faitth Brooks embraces life.

Her lively eyes and bright smile caught my attention. She explains why she embraces life on her blog.

” If you are feeling stuck in life, remember to create your own adventure!  I made every day pleasures fun because I was convinced that I wanted to live a life of whimsy and wonder. … Choose to enjoy life for yourself! “

I would say that this sums up her philosophy of life.

Being positive is one thing, but someone who is always positive ruins their credibility because life does not always deal positive experiences. Faitth embraces life and shares realistically about how she deals with bad times.

“The past two years were some of the hardest years for me but I blossomed so much because of the hardship I faced. If you need help, ask for it. If you need a therapist, get one. If you need solid community, find it. There’s no reason for you to endure a hard season alone. You need people, get your tribe to rally around you.”

Faitth’s Advice to New Bloggers

Like so many of us, blogging impacts her life in a positive way. She told me that blogging gives her courage to say things she might not say otherwise.

“It’s freeing. It’s sharing your truth out there in the world and having it resonate with others.”

Her advice to new bloggers is to write “even if you feel that no one is reading it because each person is unique and has something to share.”

  1. I love what you did here – you took action! A lot of people would make excuses I don’t have the right equipment, I don’t know any gurus or experts, I don’t have the time, I don’t know how to do it. SO, if any of these applied to you, Marsha, you blew right by them and did it anyway!

    And what a great interview! 🙂

    Thanks for sharing – I would like to showcase this in the Ultimate Blog Challenge on Day 5, if that is ok with you. Just let me know!

  4. Love your impromptu interview there……I will be doing my vlog on You tube today- as I am challenging myself to do more videos this month and for my classes on Teachable. And thought I may just interview some “one” but a little differently….I may interview my dog- hhmmmm….this could be an interesting interview- but nevertheless nothing others haven’t done before…..YES I said interview my dog, I have my idea for my vlog so it will be an added twist to today’s vlog……Possibly ending up in tomorrow’s blog…..
